NEW YORK—Senior Saints from 20 churches of the Empire State Fellowship have returned from a weeklong (September 9-15) trip in the Colorado Rockies, hosted by Christian Charter Tours (Master’s Touch) operators Warren and Debby Micale from Prescott Valley, Arizona.
The group toured the spectacular Rocky Mountain National Park and the “Garden of the Gods” (more aptly “God’s Garden”). They enjoyed the thrills of the Georgetown Loop train ride, the Royal Gorge Route Railroad, and the ride up awesome Pikes Peak (elevation 14,110 feet) on the Cog Railway. On their visit to the U.S. Air Force Academy, the group was greeted by senior cadet, Sean Malanowski, a member of First Baptist, Great Valley, N. Y.
The group also toured the beautiful 80-acre campus of Focus on the Family, where its 1,200 Christian employees serve the Lord. The dinner show at the Flying W Ranch was one of the many great meals. Daily devotions along with Sunday worship at the Rustic Hills Baptist Church, a GARBC church in Colorado Springs, added a spiritual dimension to the trip. The fellowship was outstanding, and the love and affection toward God and each other grew at the week progressed. These saints praise the Lord Jesus for His provision and obvious protection throughout the fast-paced, jam-packed, God-blessed, expectations-exceeded marvelous week.
